You are reading the blog of the newest board member of Grants to You, a wonderful non-profit organization based in Prescott, Arizona. I’m going to be doing a lot of work involving the web site and serving on a new committee. I’m tickled pink!
In other news, I got to introduce someone to the Dresden Files today! I thought everybody had heard of Butcher’s books, but in case there’s another fantasy fan out there who has been deprived: you want to read these, I promise. They’re about Chicago’s only professional wizard, Harry Dresden. He routinely deals with vampires, demons, werewolves—you name it. There was a short-lived television show that should have been longer, but it died the death of so many great shows (like Firefly).
I love them so much that I keep all fourteen volumes (thirteen novels and a collection of short stories) on my Nook as comfort reading. I’m eager to read number fourteen, and I can’t think of many other authors who can keep the excitement going that long. I’ve never encountered one person who doesn’t like these books if they’ve read them, so give them a try!
